problem reinstalling FSX
I installed FSX last year first the Standard version then the Acceleration pack. Everything was working fine and I had installed lots of addons including FSFlyingSchool, sceneries and planes. Unfortunately I had a crash and had to go back to an earlier image taken just before I started installing FSX (yes, I know I should have been more careful and made more recent backups and I'm paying the price for that ) So I proceeded to reinstall FSX but everytime I try that the installation stops with the message
"You cannot upgrade between the Standard and the Deluxe versions of Microsoft Flight Simulator X. Uninstall your current version of Flight Simulator X and restart this install"
I tried everything like:
- doing a forced uninstall to try to get rid of any residual traces of FSX or FSXX
- manually cleaning the registry searching on FSX and erasing all entries
- downloading afresh from the MSStore account page all the files
- moving all the installation files to the C (system) disk and running the install from there
Nothing helped and I'm running out of options. Naturally as expected Microsoft is no help and keeps bouncing me back and forth from one site to another...
Help anyone, please...?
